> North Dakota School Breakfast and Lunch Program
The National School Lunch Program provides nutritious lunches and opportunities to practice making healthy choices. The School Breakfast Program (SBP) is structured similar to the National School Lunch Program. The School Breakfast Meal Patterns are established by USDA. These guidelines must be followed for the meals to be reimbursable. The School Breakfast and Lunch Programs are administered by North Dakota's Department of Public Instruction.
